    No, her name is Luba.
    Hey, everyone here has heard of "Helen of Troy." "Helen of Greece" just doesn't roll of the tongue so familiarly. I actually have read both the Iliad and the Odyssey, though in English.

    It occurs to me that we call it the "Trojan Horse," when it's actually the "Greek Horse."

    Now I know why I studied Russian. Yes, I know, Ukranian isn't Russian, but I bet Russian can be understood, if only as a legacy of the Soviet occupation .

    Warmest regards,

    Nice work boss!

    As for the gun, with that expression on her, I can believe that the reason her finger is where it is, is because she just shot somebody!

    Walt, Helen of Troy, Helen of Greece, who cares? Love is always love, right?

    Spyro, it's funny how strange women are. I was sweating like a pig here while shooting those pictures (Tuesday afternoon, was very hot here, maybe 40 Celsius), and she wanted more and more. That's why her face is very shiny in some pictures. For the pictures with the pistol, she said she got into the "James Bond mood", go figure. All I wanted was to go in and cool down a little.

    I know you're joking, but when I first opened this thread, for some reason two pictures didn't load, including the pistol shot... so as I read on, I genuinely thought, dang, how did I miss a whole pistol when people are commenting on a little finger??
